Cask (gravity) @ The Bree Louise, 69 Coburg Street, Euston, London, England NW1 2HH.

Clear medium amber color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, nutty peel. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to light light heavy bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20100801]

Dark brown body, white head. Lots of malts, some caramel and dark fruits. Smooth and nice palate.

(Cask at Angleterre, Helsinki) Poured amber and clear. Head was medium sized, long lasting and white. Aroma contained malts and something resembling whisky. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, again the whisky, caramell, sweetness, hint of smoke and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter.

yespr (45869) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2010
From cask at Bree Louise. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a fully gone head. Aroma is mild fruity and malty, slight breadish. Breadish malty flavoured. Mild bitter and roasted malty. Dry malty and fruity finish.

evergreen0199 (3413) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2010
Cask at The Harp, Trafalgar Square, London. Copper coloured pour with virtually no head. Malty aroma. Tastes malty, fruity, caramel. Not one of Dark Stars best offerings to be honest.

Rune (12982) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2010
Cask, half, well kept and served at the amazing CASK Pub and Kitchen in the Pimlico area of London. Clear,red-amber body, missing head. Hop resin to the nose with malts behind. Taste of slightly roasted malts mixed with fruity hops and rounded off by crispy bitterness. Average for the style, 15.07.2010.

Cask @ R’n’H. Dark brown pour. Metallic taste, kills any chance that this beer had decent flavor.

PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Cask at Rattle n Hum: Still deep copper brown- headless. Firm fruity malt aroma. Some deep dry caramel and toasted crystal character as well as a date note. Slick light body with a dry toasted malt flavor. Has a slightly husky crystal malt presence with a hint of metallic character as well. The back is dry with a subtle herbal note. A decent session.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Cask. Pours a copper body with a white head. Earth y bitter and metallic notes all over the place, that just ruined this beer for me. Copper, tin and some earth but mostly metal. Eh, i didn’t finish the pint.
